According to Women’s Wear Daily, the gorgeous 21-year-old will be the new face of Dior’s women’s fashion and cosmetics.
Shahidi will represent the designs created by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s women’s creative director, and Dior’s image director of makeup, Peter Philips.
Shahidi previously collaborated with Dior this year on International Women’s Day for their second installment of Dior Stands With Women, the female-led education and empowerment initiative created by the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.

In the collab, Shahidi was featured in portraits and videos talking about her personal journey with activism.
“What we know to be true is that so many young women aren’t given the space to be heard consistently, to feel as though people are genuinely taking the time to understand what they’re saying,” Shahidi said in her video.
“And so when I go in to fight for what I believe is right, or what I believe is crucial to a certain project, I think there are many times that women — and it’s only exacerbated if you are a woman of color — tow the line between being viewed as assertive and driven or aggressive. And it is important and requires constant conversation even for me to know that my being assertive, my being driven, and my being committed is not something to ever be ashamed of.”
